Bready or Not Original: Quick Maple Cookie Fudge Redux

This is a shortcut fudge without any need of a candy thermometer or stress. I like to use the microwave, but you can use the stovetop if you want. You can keep the maple cookies chunky, if you desire, or grind everything to crumbs–your choice! I actually like some small chunks mixed in for texture.

The maple flavor is nice and consistent here, not cloying, while the marshmallow fluff grants the texture some extra oomph. The nuts add an extra flavor and crunch, but you can omit them if you want.

This Bready or Not Original uses maple crème cookies as the base of a fantastic microwave fudge. The fudge should be stored in the fridge, but also keeps very well at room temperature for parties and potlucks.

  • 9×13 pan
  • aluminum foil
  • nonstick spray or butter


  • 3 cups white chocolate chips
  • 12.3 ounces maple crème cookies crushed/chopped/maimed, about 20 cookies
  • 7 ounces marshmallow fluff
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon maple flavor
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts walnuts, pecans, macadamias, etc


  • Prepare a 9×13 pan by lining it with foil and applying nonstick spray.
  • Either in microwave or on stovetop, carefully melt chocolate with sweetened condensed milk and marshmallow cream. If microwaving, do it in short bursts because it can burn fast! Stir often.
  • When the mix is smooth, add the maple flavor and vanilla. Fold in the maple cookies and nuts. Pour fudge into the prepared pan. Use an uneven spatula to smooth out the top.
  • Refrigerate at least 3 hours, until the fudge is firm. Cut into bite size pieces. Keep stored in fridge between layers of wax paper. Unlike some other quick fudges, this will keep well for hours at room temperature.
